Sedimentary Rocks slowest to form, and weather the fastest! The material is deposited in layers that will eventually form the sedimentary rock. These may be transported, usually by water or wind in the case of sand and deposited to form sediments. These become buried under later forming sediments and water or by major tectonic activity, and then become subjected to compression as enormous pressures are created deep in the crust from the weight of rocks or sediments above them.
Quick - let's get started Hula Hoops Who needs technology when you can stick a hula hoop on the board? It would work well for other circle-based topics too.
Stick a hula hoop on the board and use it to teach circle theorems. Stick two or three on the board to make a Venn diagram. Sometimes when students are completing practice questions in class, you end up repeating yourself numerous times as you move from student to student.
Instead, put the questions on the board and ask students to stick a named post-it note on any questions they need help with - then they can carry on with the rest of the exercise without having to wait with their hand up.
For example the picture below shows that you'd need to help one student individually with question 9, but it may be worth going through question 10 with the whole class, or gathering a group together to discuss it. This technique stops duplication of effort and helps the teacher assess understanding, plus it has the benefit of getting students out of their seats, albeit briefly.
A little bit of movement keeps students alert. With this free app you can take a photo of a wall of post-it notes and then organise them digitally on your phone or tablet.
Every poster is excellent so it was hard to choose three examples for this post! In addition to the posters, Mr Walton suggests revision cards in the form of ration booklets and a school broadcast by the Ministry of Maths!
All 16 editable posters and associated resources can be downloaded here. Two examples are shown in the picture - the red line joins the numbers 3 and 4, crossing the y-axis at 12, an the green line joins the numbers 2 and 2, crossing the y-axis at 4.
It's a bizarre multiplication method. The algebra is accessible and satisfying.
Figuring it out would make a good task for bright GCSE students or sixth formers studying coordinate geometry. If you happen to be visiting Germany then do go to the Mathematikum. There you will find a parabola drawn on a wall with a length of rope for visitors to tie from one point on the parabola to another - the point at which the rope crosses the y-axis is the product source: Does anyone want to take up the challenge of putting one of these interactive displays on their classroom wall?
If so, please send me a photo! Counting Circles There's been a lot of buzz amongst American teachers on Twitter about counting circles.
This is a simple and versatile activity to develop number sense and mental maths strategies. Students take it in turns to count up or down in specified intervals. For example they could start at 35 and count up in 13s, or they could start at See how creative you could be with this?
You could use fractions, decimals, negatives, minutes, algebraGermany Revision. Modern History Web Sites.
PBS Online A great source for information on a myriad of historical events and personalities. PBS’s assorted and diverse web exhibits supplement specific individual television series and generally include a resume of each episode, interviews (often with sound bites), a timeline, a glossary, photos, and links to relevant sites.
